Deus Ex and the Dark Knight kick off 2018’s first PlayStation Plus free games line-up
Dark and gritty dystopias abound in January's serving of PlayStation Plus games.
There's always going to be some amount of disappointment every time a new month's PlayStation Plus line-up is announced, with personal tastes and existing games libraries affecting how worthwhile the new roster seems. It doesn't matter how much value a month's titles represent, either; some games just aren't going to appeal to certain players.
While this remains true for the first dose of PlayStation Plus free games of 2018, the line-up is definitely one of the strongest the service has seen in quite some time. Headlining the January offerings is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, a stealth action game we felt improved upon its predecessor in every way. The dark, gritty future the game portrays is sadly more relevant than ever these days, but at least as Adam Jensen you can punch through solid walls and hack your way to some semblance of peace in the midst of existential conflict.
Swooping in alongside Deus Ex is everyone's favourite caped crusader, the Dark Knight. Batman: The Telltale Series sees the Bats lean harder on his detective side than in games like Batman: Arkham Knight, and you'll have to manage both his crime-fighting capers and his less fisticuffs-focused moments as Bruce Wayne.
As usual, that's not it for the free games, with the PS3 and PS Vita getting their own serving of freebies to ring in the new year. All games will be available to download from 2 January, and you can check out the full PlayStation Plus line-up for January 2018 below:
